NCLEX and Uworld

  1. I sit for NCLEX 6/12, currently doing Uworld, I signed up for a months subscription and had a self assessment in which I scored 60% on. I've got about 800 questions left and I'm in the 58th percentile. I don't feel prepared at all, just wondering how everyone scored and what their success was with NCLEX.

    I had the same question when I started studying for NCLEX. From what I saw here on allnurses, someone scoring above a 55-60% overall (not percentile) rarely failed NCLEX. Any lower and it was questionable.

    Focus on the rationales and try to figure out if your issue is test taking strategies or if you're weak on content. Good luck.

    We did use HESI. I scored a 1217/99.99%. Class average was a 960 or so. If it helps, my score on uworld is a bit over 70% right now too, overall.

    We were required to do Kaplan, but I wasn't impressed with Kaplan's rationals

    Uworld have definitely been awesome with rationals but I just fear that I'm not covering enough material. There's a lot of things on there I haven't heard of

    Personally I felt UWorld was the best prep. Somewhere on the internet there is a chart that correlates your test averages to pass probability. I remember that I had a test average of about 74 and a prediction of 99.7. Passed in 75. Wish I could be more so we vific about finding that list!

    I've always said if I finally pass the NCLEX then I'll give my testimony to someone who needed to hear my story. I graduated from my nursing program with A's and 1 B and kept all A's and B's throughout the program. After graduating, most of my classmates went on to pass the NCLEX the first time but I failed using Hurst. I can remember doing all 265 q of agony, so I decided to do Mark Klimekv and Kaplan, went in for a second time and the computer stopped at 131..I felt confident about this one, the ladies at the center were early congratulating me about passing so I went home and did the pvt trick and it let me pay. I cried, had a massive headache and slept for what seemed like an eternity. I'm starting to get embarrassed now because I told my boss that I should be returning to work now I'm torn. Once I got myself together, I purchased Uworld and I did questions in my sleep. I would wake up doing questions but I was in the 53rd percentile and my scores ranged from 50-100 just depending on how many questions I did in that setting. 2 days before NCLEX I purchased a stimulation test through NCLEX mastery RN and after 75 q, it said I had a 90% probability of padding NCLEX, yet I still felt uneasy because now my Uworld scores are starting to go in the 40s due to anxiety. Fast forward to test day, I woke up 3 hours early and got dressed, took an allergy pill with pseudoephedrine in it because I have horrible allergies, got to the testing center an hour early and start to eat my yogurt with fruit while looking over lab values and I couldn't recognize the words. Right before my eyes, my vision was fading and nobody was there at the center to help me. I looked in the mirror and couldn't see my face so I immediately called my best friend who jumped out of bed and drove 30 miles to be with me. She calmed me down and my vision smowly started to get better. I go in the center and tell the Pearson worker about my problem and she held my hand and prayed for me, a long prayer while everyone watched..YES She Did and I will always be grateful for her prayer. So they put me in a room to test by myself due to my anxiety and my vision. I started taking the test, 1st question was hard so I knew I was in for a ride. I stopped at 73 to take a break and refocus because I just knew it would shut down at 75 because I'm feeling a little better NOPE, pass 100 I'm starting to cry then I said NOPE, bring yourself back so then I stopped and began to pray. At this point my vision is iffy but I kept trucking into another break. The guy at the center informed me that some people are chosen to take the entire test and said he hopes I'm not gonna be one. So after 200, I knew I was failing because the questions went up and down from what I felt were extremely difficult to very easy but by using Uworld the difficult seemed easier than before. After 200, I justwas over it but I kept saying Fear and Faith can't exist in the same space so choose 1. Needless to say, I finished at 265 and it was a therapeutic communication question;( I cried all the way home but I held my head high, got home and went in my closet and got on my knees and prayed the longest hardest prayer just to give thanks for getting through. My friend wanted to try the pvt with her credit card and put in the right info because she's just a great friend, I gave her my login info, told her not to tell me anything and I went to sleep. When I woke up, she'd texted me asking was I sure so I said yea. Then she called me screaming that I got the good pop up and I'm still in disbelief, she even checked again a couple hours later but after failing twice, you just lose faith in the pvt even though it was correct the other 2 times I failed so now it's just a waiting game to see if I get my number. I said all of this just to say first always keep your Faith in God and remember that you have to choose between Faith and Fear. Keep you a great friend that's rooting for you and wants to see you do well. Also, 265q isn't always bad and Uworld is the Real Deal truth. If you don't purchase anything else, get Uworld because I was lost on SATA until I got it. Pass or Fail, I owe everything to God, Uworld and my best friend. Now it's a waiting game.

    Hi! Im also using Uworld and i have 600 questions left. I also felt the same way after a week of using it so what I did was I went back to Saunders and read every chapter specially the one I'm really weak at (Cardio, Neuro). I also finished PDA La Charity, this book really helped me a lot. Then I went back to answering questions at UWORLD and i felt a lot better and more confident. Sometimes, goin back to content helps. Also I do NCLEX Mastery app and found the questions really easy, not sure if it's because UWORLD's qbanks are a lot harder and mostly SATA. Good luck to you! I'm taking my exam end of the month.
